How do I protect a Workgroup or Untrusted Domain Server with a DPM 2010 Secondary Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does any one know how I can achieve this,   I've added 2 "non-domain"  servers to my primary DPM server and it works without any issue.   I'd like to replicate this protection to my secondary DPM server.   I'm currently replicating a large number of Domain servers on my secondary server but when I choose to create a protection group the no-domain servers don't show up?   I'm I doing something wrong?   I would like to do this as I'm operating a D2D2T policy and my tape drive is attached to my secondary DPM server.

  • This is not a supported scenario. Workgroup/untrusted domain machines are not supported for Secondary server protection. Please find the complete list of supported/unsupported scenarios for workgroup/untrusted domains at:http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff634170.aspx

  • Thanks Praveen,

    Unfortunatly, that link did not state that secondary protection was not supported.  I added a note at the bottom of that page to help other customers that may bump into this.

    Secondary protection for workgroup / untrusted domains is not supported

    You are protecting data sources on a workgroup or untrusted domain server using a primary DPM server, when you attempt to add secondary protection on a secondary DPM server, the protected servers in a workgroup / untrusted doman are not listed.  Consquently, they can be added for secondary protection.  

    Reason: DPM 2010 does not support secondary protection of servers in a workgroup or untrusted domain.
